this is not a Catalyst question, it’s a Template::Toolkit one.
The answer is to put `[% USE UTF8Decode %]` in `prepare.tt` and
add `PREPROCESS => 'prepare.tt'` to your TT config. Adjust the
name of the include file to taste, obviously, and list multiple
files by passing an array ref instead of a string.
